(From Ecpiesmos 3168 and to press out.) In general it implies expression; but it is the name of a disorder of the eye, which consists in a great prominence of the entire globe, thrust, as it were, almost out of the orbit by a flow of humours, or a tumour from the bottom or sides of the orbit.

It is also a true exophthalmia produced by strong exertions, by which the eyes are so far pressed out as to remain prominent. Protuberances of the eyes, happening from child bed pains, are often cured by the succeeding discharges and lochia. It is therefore unnecessary to employ any remedy. Wallis's Nosologia Ocu-lorum.
